This will make the managers throw away your resume right away

Recruiters and managers often receive many CVs a day. Then it is important to be careful not to make such mistakes that can cost you the job opportunity that you may be dreaming of. News24 lists some common mistakes that cause them to throw your resume directly in the trash.

Carelessly written

A carelessly written CV makes you appear uninvolved and not very interested in the job. If the CV is carefully done, the candidate also appears as such, which increases the chances of getting the job.

Avoid clichés

Stacking clichés as if you are “a flexible and ambitious team player with a lot of iron in the fire” on each other in your application will also not increase your chances.

Inappropriate image

In many cases, it can be an advantage to have a picture of yourself in your application to leave a stronger imprint on the employer. But be careful what kind of image it is. A blurred image in swimwear or with a wine glass in hand will guarantee that you end up in the trash.

Unscrupulous email address

If you write in your contact information the email address “[email protected]” you are doing yourself a disservice. A rogue email address does not give a particularly professional impression. In other words, that old address you got in middle school is time to replace before the job search.

Poor structure and layout

Too much text or too little font makes it difficult for the employer to absorb the content. If you have also forced someone to put on their glasses to even be able to read your CV, this is not a good start. So you do not have to fill every little corner of the paper!
